Like I said before, I've been doing that already, esp since it got
colder and the mountain biking is on hold.

Yes. In the summer, I was actually gaining weight, putting on muscle
from the biking. Legs were looking good, stomach, not so...biking does
nothing for the abdomen.

I said no cardio because I already get enough cardio. I dance, ride
bikes(outside and stationary inside), and walk already. The stationary
bike just is cardio...it really does nothing else, compared to regular
biking. I really just need the flexibility and strength building stuff,
with some calisthenics like sit ups or leg lifts thrown in.
